Editor's Notes: Weather aside, footwear silhouettes and fabrication choices are often a pretty strong indication of the seasons.
The Nike Air Force 1 "Wheat," for example, always signals the arrival of fall, while its classic white leather counterpart becomes omnipresent through the warmer months of the year. Basic science, really.
Similarly, the arrival of BEAMS weather-appropriate remix of the timeless Clarks Originals Wallabee Boot typically means we're in the midst of cold and wet conditions, making its GORE-TEX-fitted construction a welcomed addition to any seasonal rotation.
Keen eyes and collectors will probably feel a little deja vu from these pairs – naturally, this isn't the first time the collaborative style has appeared in these colorways.
These are the same beast ushered in three years ago between the pair, boasting GORE-TEX suede and lining, all sat atop the ultra-durability and comfort of a Vibram crepe sole.
Unlike last year's iteration by way of BEAMS Boy, which opted for a dark navy coating, 2022 marks a return to form with the essential licks of black and beige – making both sets perfect for pairing with your BEAMS apparel setup.
Clearly, Clarks Originals and BEAMS have settled on gold with their collaboration, and well, if it ain't broke, why fix it?
